    my suggestion is just be extra patient and keep trying, dont give up. I've been having the same problem all week, up until about 20 minutes ago. went and checked one of the "in stock" stores, and I was finally able to get one. they (toy dept) were in the middle of the reset. I asked the employee if he could check his device, he did, told me there was nothing. so as I'm leaving he screams out "IS THIS IT? the box was on his rack right there in front of us. so he cracked it open and I got one. I've been trying all week and persistence has finally paid. I know the feeling coming up empty. just keep at it...

    for those in west Houston I scored a rainmaker set at Memorial City Target tdy. they had one left as of about 10:30 this morning. good luck to everyone.

    There's a couple Reflectors and a Brunt at the Target on Whitestone in Cedar Park. Been seeing the rest of the wave at the WalMarts and Targets nearby too, but this is the only one I've seen Reflector at.

    Edit: Hahaha same one as posted above. That's what I get for not checking what's been posted since last I checked the thread lol.

    Target in Ft worth (Presido Towne Crossing) off 35W

    Had at least 5 of the new micromaster box sets. Passed on picking any up today bc of finances and holding out for a decent sale.

    No sight of the rainmakers

    I wasn't really looking for them, but... I don't think so? Is the Blackjack one the latest one out? If so, I've seen a couple at the Arboretum Target farther south.

    I saw these figs recently in a thread here on TFW somewhere but don’t remember where. These are at the WM on Custer and 380 in McKinney for $25:

    I missed them online as well. Hopefully it’ll be like RedWing and they’ll just go back up in a week or so.

    I literally had the online order up in the store but decided to ask if it was in stock as I was right there. By the time they checked their system, it was sold out. I think I’m just going to wait for a bit.

    COOL, & good for you, Pandastrong! I wish I could find a G1 Soundwave here in San Antonio. My Brother gave me his old G1 one, but I'd LOVE a minty-new tight-jointed one with fresh stickers! I have a Takara SoundBlaster from years ago, but I'd enjoy having his predecessor.

    What have my fellow Alamo-City TF Collectors found lately, & what are you looking for? Springer is top of my own Want-List, since I already located a single Red Alert at Walmart on Bandera Rd. Thundercracker is also a must-buy for me. I recently got Greenlight off Amazon & am looking forward to Lancer from Entertainment Earth in August.

    I checked again this morning and the Crowley Walmart is out of Soundwave, but does have 2 sets of the cassettes.

    I just can't with the fembots. Chromia is a terrible figure and I imagine the other 2 are more of the same.
